Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-12-31 17:39:08 UTC
At least they document the changes, I don't know if libdnet ever merged those back, it might be worth looking at that.

I just had a quick look and it appears that all/most of the changes are not included in libdnet-1.11.
Comment 2 Michal Januszewski (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-26 10:20:23 UTC
I don't think there is any way we can fix this currently.  The modifications made in the nmap version include some fixes and a patch that adds support for SCTP.  Nmap won't compile against a libdnet which doesn't have this patch, and it's not included in the upstream version (yet).
Comment 3 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2013-08-01 15:32:02 UTC
What I found out about disentangling the bundled libs so far:

1) libdnet-stripped is hard-coded in various C headers and elsewhere
2) dev-libs/libdnet-1.12 supports SCTP, so we should be able to fairly easily switch, if it
   weren't for 1).
3) liblinear[1] is not in the tree
4) autotools changes are difficult (e.g. [2])

I made some initial progress but then I got tired and threw away my work in disgust. This isn't going to be easy.

[2] CHANGELOG:Cleaned up the libpcre build system a bit by removing

>=dev-lang/lua-5.2 is still package.masked.
